Trying to get wireshark to run on windows 10 build 10240. Running on ASUS laptop 64 bit home version. I loaded win10pcap and then wireshark. When I run wireshark it says npf driver not running. If I try sc start npf it says service does not exist. Thanks...Brian

WinPcap 4.1.3 is working fine on Windows 10. Did you try uninstalling win10pcap and installing WinPcap instead?

Win10pcap does not install a driver called npf, so Wireshark complains about it not being present. If you see capture interfaces in the list you can ignore that message.
